Beautiful sofa designed by Axel Larsson, executed by master carpenter Hjalmar Jacksson at Stockholms Hantverksförening. Frame made from walnut with a “ribbon” of walnut running along the upper edge of the sofa, down the sides in a curve and along the base of the seats. Original, green velvet fabric upholstered by master upholstered Haglund.

The design is represented in the archives of Stockholms Hantverksförening. This sofa was part of Stockholms Hantverksförening’s prestigious Hantverkslotteriet, a popular lottery founded in Stockholm in the mid 1800s offering expertly crafted furniture and other items by highly regarded designers. The lottery had big exhibitions aimed at increasing public interest in artisanal pieces and the proceeds were used for the various activities of Stockholms Hantverksförening, among them acquiring a permanent showroom, holding public lectures and funding study trips.
